Supporting Trans* Scholars Watch Party

Tuesday, October 26, 2021, 12:15-1:30pm ET

Registration

Join the Office of the Provost and members of the Commission for LGBT as we watch the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity’s Supporting Trans* Scholars webinar and engage in local discussion of the issues and strategies presented. In this webinar, Dr. D-L Stewart, professor of education at the University of Denver, will address the key questions and strategies needed to support trans* scholars, but also to reform and transform how we consider gender in the academy. Through discussion of institutional systems and processes, career advancement, microaggressions, and trans* resilience, attendees will gain greater insight into how they and their institutions can support trans* scholars.

Re-Thinking Mentoring: How to Build Communities of Inclusion, Support, and Accountability

Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 2:00-4:00pm ET

Registration*

This virtual workshop is designed to start a new type of discussion about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. We propose an alternative framework for mentoring that focuses on needs assessment and shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community and accountability. The virtual workshop concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pre-tenure, under-represented and mid-career faculty.  This workshop will be facilitated by Professor Naomi Levy from Santa Clara University who is also part of the NCFDD team.
